red wine-braised oxtails, dirty dancing, and maida heatter’s book of great desserts.

what could be better on a saturday night?
hungry eyes, indeed.

no more tears:
and speaking of eyes, i’m perusing my copy of cook’s illustrated’s the best recipe, and they suggest the best way to avoid a teary mess when chopping up onions is to either wear goggles or contacts or to keep a flame lit nearby the chopping area. back in the saveur test kitchen, julia lee let me in on her no-fail method: keeping your mouth full of water. i guess this keeps you from intaking all of those sulfuric compounds into your mucus membranes. sometimes i’m lazy though and pretend that prepping my mirepoix is a tragedy.
